Right, hi there! I spent the whole day mapping in the editor (Well... experimenting ;) ) and I wanted to save my work.
I watched a few tutorials, I scoured the SCS Forums, but I couldn't find an answer to my problem.

I have created a base folder in my installation directory, and extracted the base.scs to there.
I got the map folder, and there are 3 things in there:

An autosave folder, a europe folder and a europe.mbd file.
When I try to save my work in the editor, it always says Failed to create the output file - The map is NOT saved, backups have been advanced :shock:

Can anyone help me with this?


Thanks in advance,

This is my map folder, inside said base folder:

(Please note that there isn't an autosave folder anymore (probably because the editor crashed and I lost my work))

Is there anything missing here?

There should be an europe.bak folder and a europe.set folder created when the game is saved, however, they are missing here. Try deleting these files from the "map" folder and then saving your work. New files should be created.
